Quote of the Day

“Books written by thinkers – men who thought and dared to express their thoughts – are always worth reading. I care not whether their authors were Atheists or Methodists, Heathen or Mohammedan; the life’s blood of the author circulates through them, and in reading you feel its pulsations. But books written by men who never saw with their own eyes, who never put out their hands, and felt the world for themselves, nor took one manly step, are the faintest echoes from the distant hills compared with the heaven-shaking thunder that produced them.”

Denton, title page of Rocky Mountain Saints
